Steampunk


It's funny how archaic the term 'virtual reality' sounds in this day and age. Wasn't it supposed to revolutionise everything from education to medical practice? Those big clunky headsets may have looked cool for about a week or so, when I was young, but then so did the idea of having microchips implanted in my brain. This rusty Jules Verne style VR unit seems rather fitting when you concider we were all mean't to be living on Mars by now.

Steampunk!

And by the way (on a tenuously related note), try Googling "Emotiv Epoc". :)

I'm afraid until the technology becomes a lot more intuitive, I can't help but think of all these gizmos as just novelty toys.

I certainly agree the current technology definitely does *not* live up to those heady predictions...
